What a little beauty!!!

This is a fabulous Ferrania Rondine box camera made in 1948 in Italy. Its name means Swallow in italian. It has a single shutter speed, a prism reflex finder and an eye level finder. It has an all metal body and feels very substantial. The body is covered in black grained leather cloth. There is a lot of attention to detail including a tripod thread. The amazing thing is its size. As you can see it's slightly smaller than a cigarette packet.

The Rondine has a Linear 7,5 cm/8.8 lens and takes 4×6.5 pictures. The camera is in very good condition and working. It uses 127 film which you wont find in any camera store, but is available online.
